The 30 Days to Preparedness course is excellent if you want a quick, easy-to-understand explanation of how to prepare at the fundamental level. It's about building a foundation before moving to the Prepping 101 course.

While this is a beginners prepping course, there is quite a bit to go over. Take your time and revisit any lesson or module you need to. This course will relieve the confusion & overwhelm most people face when they start with preparedness.

The Prepping 101 course covers everything that needs to be considered at home. This course goes over navigating a large-scale disaster, including bugging in, bugging out, and getting home safely.

It covers all the critical factors to successfully handle an SHTF situation.

Your level of preparedness at home will largely determine your success in most disaster situations. However, disasters can happen unexpectedly, and we cannot control when and where they occur.

When it comes to prepper communications, there are several important considerations to keep in mind, especially in terms of family planning and information gathering.

Contrary to popular prepping advice, ham radio is not the only option for preppers to use. While ham radio (amateur radio) is a popular and reliable communication method for preppers due to its long-range capabilities and independence from traditional communication infrastructure, there are other options available as well.

taking preparedness to the next level

This will be an ongoing and ever growing course that will start as a follow up to the Prepping 101 Course, and get more advanced as it grows. Just like we do as preppers. 

Because preparedness is an ongoing journey, we must Continuously educate ourselves, practice our skills, and adapt our plans based on evolving circumstances and new information.

This course will include ways to stay informed about current events, regularly review and update our supplies, and conduct periodic drills or simulations to test your preparedness level. 

By embracing a lifelong learning and adaptation mindset, we can continue to enhance our readiness and resilience in the face of unforeseen challenges. This is where the rubber meets the road in preparedness.
